The green promise
A wedding in Cana –
Jesus saving the best for last,
turning water into wine.
A wedding come about
and then transfiguration -
bread and water becoming bread and wine
on the tongues of true believers;
then, a conception: a new, double life
and an offspring,the little child
you must become, father to the man.
An exchange of vows and a green promise,
a sweet new crush after the ripening - the best for last.
O pilgrim, through these daunting times
in your life and the world, drink to that
best for last - the sweet crush, the green promise,
the saving of the best for last, the best for last.
O child of God, to reach the Oneness
get drunk enough to obliterate all boundaries.
